Manjaro ARM 18.10 released!
I am proud to announce the immediate availability of Manjaro ARM 18.10.
This is mostly a “bugfix” release, to fix a serious issue with the 18.09 Raspberry Pi images.
And to introduce Raspberry Pi 3 (aarch64) images!
Torrents are also available from the same location.
New images are available.
Raspberry Pi 2: Minimal and LXQT
Raspberry Pi 3: Minimal, LXQT and KDE
Odroid C1: Minimal
Odroid C2: Minimal, LXQT and KDE
- Aarch64 based Raspberry Pi 3 images!
- New kernels
- Updated packages in general
- Raspberry Pi images can now do kernel updates and still work afterwards
- Small changes to LXQT edition. Using connman and firefox now, just to name a few.
- Added KDE edition for select devices. Right now it’s
- Torrents for all images also available
Updating from 18.09:
If you are updating from our 18.09 raspberry pi images, you probably noticed previously the image would stop working after the first kernel update.
If you still have a working 18.09 image, please follow these steps to correctly update to a working system 18.10 system:
sudo nano /etc/fstab.
- Add a line containing
/dev/mmcblk0p1 /boot vfat defaults 0 0.
- Save it and reboot.
- Perform the update:
sudo pacman -Syyu.
Also, if you use the 18.09 LXQT image, you need to downgrade
xorg-server-common when it says your local ones are newer than the repo. Xorg Server version 1.20.2 stops GUI from starting an ARM devices. Version 1.20.0 is in the repo until it gets fixed.
What about other devices?
I have not built XU4 images of 18.10. I can’t support all these images, so XU4 has become unmaintained.
We don’t support any armv6h devices, as that would require extra manpower and a bigger server hosting the repository.
I only built minimal edition of oc1 this time. I have no idea if it works. The lxqt edition I tried, did not work, so that’s not uploaded. Will probably drop
oc1 for next release.
